We stayed at the Crystal Admiral for two weeks in early October and we were very disappointed in its location. The hotel was advertised as being in Side which was where we wanted to be but is 15 -25k outside Side depending on who you spoke to. It was an expensive taxi ride to get to Side. The hotel is very big and we were expecting all the problems that come with that in the dining room. The one thing we hated was the smoking - there were about 20 Brits in the hotel at the time and the rest were mainly Russians/Easten Europeans with a few German and Dutch guests. The smoking was bad enough around the pool area but whilst you are eating was dreadful and most days we stayed just long enough to eat a main course and left. At other Crystal hotels there was a dress policy for the dining room in the evening, but at the Admiral it seemed beach shorts and white vests were perfectly acceptable! I do agree everything was very clean and most of the staff were very friendly even if they couldn't speak English but we did find the management team walked around as if they had a bad smell under their noses. We had a reasonable holiday but would not return.
